Defying the Data Tsunami

Your cover feature – “Towards Tsunami-Resistant Chemometrics” – stirred up quite a bit of interest…

Yes, it did. I’ve had a lot of responses, especially at conferences. Now, “tsunami” is used regularly to describe large amounts of data... That’s really quite remarkable.

Everyone is beginning to realize that large amounts of data present problems – the big data issue has exacerbated the situation. Governments and large science organizations see it as one of the major issues that need addressing through “data science”, a new umbrella term that includes chemometrics. In fact, I now tag on “chemical data science” whenever I use chemometrics as it helps those unacquainted with the field. But if we stop using chemometrics, we lose part of our identity.

About the Author

Lutgarde Buydens

“During my PhD on drug activity, I realized that much more information is hidden in experiments than is obvious at first sight,” says Lutgarde Buydens. As a student of Désiré Luc Massart, one of the founders of chemometrics, data analysis and interpretation quickly became her main focus. After postdocing in the US, Buydens joined Radboud University in the Netherlands, where she is now chair in Analytical Chemistry – Chemometrics. Her interest in better data analysis and interpretation is as strong as ever. “To help discover new knowledge in so many different fields, from food science, medical sciences to industrial processes still excites me every day,” she says.
